Players must register for the program prior to being placed on a team. Payment is due at the time of registration and can be completed online or at any Treasure Valley YMCA location. Scheduled payment plans and financial assistance are also available by contacting the sports office.

Financial Assistance is available » No child will be turned away due to inability to pay. We support those families in need. Please print and fill out the above form. Simply attach it to your registration form and visit any YMCA location.

National AAU Player Membership

All players must obtain a current National AAU Athlete Membership prior to practices beginning to be eligible for participation. AAU memberships are valid through August 31st each year. If you played in a season this year with us, your AAU card is still current and will not need to purchase another one. We have that card on file.

The YMCA will gladly purchase and maintain the AAU membership for you. If you elect for the YMCA to purchase the membership a $20 fee is added to their registration fee. There is no additional cost or processing fee within this selection. The YMCA purchases all AAU Memberships the Friday before the first practice date.

If you choose to purchase the membership on your own please do so and either indicate the membership number during registration or forward the number to YMCA staff.

League Website

Once registered please bookmark the TREASURE VALLEY AAU LEAGUE WEBSITE (this page). This contains scores, standings, communication, schedules and more.

Team Formation

Because there are no tryouts for this specific league, team can be formed by coaches/parents outside of the Y. There is a spot on the registration to put a coaches name or team name to make sure we get all of the players from a specific team together. If you do not have a full team, we will create teams geographically and not necessarily future high school based.

TVAAU divisions are formed based on the player’s grade they are in during the current school year. Please also note that geographic areas may be combined should a particular area be lower in overall registration.

Teams are limited to 8 minimum and 10 maximum players. You can create your own team and player/coach requests will be accepted but not guaranteed.

The YMCA does NOT provide coaches for this program. All coaches are volunteers. Coaches are provided resources and training as needed and we are happy to support all coaches in any way possible. In this case we ask that parents of those teams work to identify a coach for the team.

Coaching & Volunteering

All coaches are unpaid volunteers who give their time to improve the lives of players and help develop skills in basketball and the art of teamwork and effort. Coaches are subject to a background check and are selected based on past coaching history and experience working with youth. No contact information is released until a background check is complete. Safety is a commitment we make to youth.

Approved background checks are good for two years from initial approval. If you are unsure if yours has expired or will expire during the duration of the program please contact basketball@ymcatvidaho.org.
